Alex Pall: Pushing Boundaries in Music and at Home

Alex Pall is a master of mixing, as evidenced when listening to his music as well as upon entrance to his luxurious home in Hollywood Hills.

Pall is one half of the wildly popular DJ duo known as, “The Chainsmokers,” who achieved their fame from their composition and performance of dance music. Although their success began in the dance music genre, they are constantly seeking to grow as artists in whatever direction that takes them. As Pall stated when questioned about the duo’s foray into indie, pop and hip-hop genres, “We bring it upon ourselves to bring a new and exciting show. It also comes down to us. We don’t want to keep doing the same things. We want to keep doing exciting things and pushing ourselves.”

It is no surprise that Pall’s home mimics his music – brashly mixing colors and decades in a style few have the courage, or ability, to pull off. Designer Peti Lau is the mastermind who pulled it all together, bathing the home in her signature style, trademarked fittingly, “AristoFreak.” His home was originally built in the 1930s, with renovations taking place throughout the 80s and 90s, an eclectic combination to say the least – much like the music he performs.

Andrew Taggert, the other half of “The Chainsmokers, talks openly about their transition from dance music into other genres, blurring the lines of how they’ve been defined throughout their 4 years together. “We’re huge music fans, we listen to everything. Why are we formatting ourselves?” As they grow as artists and performers, the challenge remains to honestly portray who they are and tell stories through their music about what they are going through in their lives off stage.

Alex Pall is a man who isn’t satisfied with a single label, whether that’s in his music, or in his home. A man who is constantly pushing boundaries and smashing stereotypes to be the most creative and colorful human being he can be.
